Default How much to level out the 2013 slt

Hi all, have my 2013 slt 4x4 on order, I was curious to know how much (if any) the front end would need to be leveled to get an even stance on the truck? I see kits ranging from 1.5 to 2.5 inches so I am unsure what is needed.

who is makin 2013 kits? others have been askin and I wasn't sure who is making kits for the 2013s yet? go measure your front and back end And see what it takes to be level. probably 2.5 inches will get you close.

i have a sport on order and have followed this topic closely.have never done a level but from the many pictures i see 2.5 is really close.someone on here mention that if you had the performance hood the level looks like a rear end sag.i have seen 1 picture and i agree. so for me with the performance hood im going 2 inches-if regular hood i would go 2.5. many pictures of levelled rams on this site-good luck.

2.5 gets you spot on but I plan to do 2" kit to leave a little rake for loading...most likely will do a .75" rear spacer as well...so I will end up cutting the stock rake in half. Should look significantly better but still be set to tow or haul when needed.

I'd go 2", even if the fender measurements front and rear are the same (level) it will always look nose high. But if you're into that than go 2.5"

buying a truck 2013 1500 sport from Quebec and asked about the level kit. he said 2.5 front and .75 rear. Best kind, then he gave me a price which happened to be $980.00 CAN. lol ya right, I don't think. pass on that.

My truck is going in Monday for a 2" front to level it. I liked the 1.5" I had on my 09 2wd big horn and I got a 14 lone star 4wd. I will put up a before and after.
